About Us

Polu Lani Surf Lessons & Adventures is a Honolulu, Hawaii, independent, locally owned and operated business. Helmed by a seasoned, competitive amateur surfer and swim instructor, we provide safe, wholesome surfing lessons for children and adults.

After years of teaching his loved ones how to surf, our owner realized his true calling was to educate others on this vital facet of Hawaiian culture. Backed by over 30 years of experience, we strive to stay true to his mission and provide a safe, comfortable learning environment.

We go the extra mile to ensure your comfort. During your lesson, we provide water, snacks, and pictures. In order to maintain safety during our lessons, we keep a low instructor to student ratio, with one instructor per every four students. Our lessons are incredibly safe and inclusive, as our instructors have experience teaching both small children and disabled students.
